SOVA Science: The Importance of Shore D Hardness

Posted by Lisa Edwards on

The Science of a Better Day

Many have asked about our Research and Development at ATI ( Akervall Technologies Inc.) Here is some of the science explained.

Shore D Hardness

Shore D hardness measures the hardness of semi rigid and hard plastics and indicates the resistance of a material to indentation. SOVA material* has a higher Shore D hardness when compared to EVA** which makes the material more difficult to indent.

* SOVA material (51-55) ** EVA material (15-45) 

The Shore D hardness of the SOVA material is one example of the SOVA Advantage.
